I'll Take a Melody is really a cool song. "Shine On, Keep on Shinin'! Shine On!"
Some of this solo stuff is too intricate for the heavy beast that was the GD. Nice to hear jerry play with some air beneath his wings...

"You know I've been called a dreamer
Dreams that never will come true..."

Funny, that's the one I skipped :) It's not a bad song, but I'm somehow never really enthusiastic to hear it.

I LOVE "I'll Take a Melody"...Allen Toussaint wrote many a great song and that is certainly one of them. Jerry always did a great take on it.
